Civilization Is The West History? DVD - On Sale Now With Fast Shipping!

The West once ruled more than half the world. The religion it exported is still followed by a third of mankind. Above all, the way people live--or aspire to live--is unmistakably an invention of the West. All over the world, more and more human beings eat a Western diet, wear Western clothes and live in Western housing. But are we living through the beginning of the end of the Wests ascendancy? The series includes:
1. A Tale of Two Rivers: Why Western Europes economy outstripped Eastern Chinas
2. The Siege: Why Central Europe turned the tide against the Ottoman Empire
3. New Worlds: Why North America succeeded where South America failed
4. Hearts of Darkness: Why Europes empires failed in their mission to civilize Africa
5. Cross-dressing Civilizations: The resurrection of the West as the consumer society
6. Lost Faiths: The decline of Western beliefs--not only Christianity, but also nationalism and even Communism.
